please do the whole show run to see all information including bottom part.

Most likely you have restricted license (R), if so you need to upgrade license to (UR) unrestricted . R is limited to three interfaces whereas (UR) is for total of 6 physical interfaces.


to upgrading 515E from R to UR you need software license upgrade part number #

(PIX-515-SW-R-UR= )

Licensing Software features


requires CCO login

Licensing and Activation Keys


Also if you can upgrade that code to 6.3(5) and PDM as well.

pls rate any helpful post !
